Whether you first heard of him as "You-Know-Who," "He Who Must Not Be Named" or "the Dark Lord," you knew the evil Lord Voldemort and the rest of the Harry Potter universe would be ripe for parody.

"Potted Potter: The Unauthorized Harry Experience, a Parody by Dan and Jeff" opened this month in the Windows Showroom at Bally's Las Vegas.

The comedy, written by Dan Clarkson and Jefferson Turner, condenses "all seven Harry Potter books in 70 hilarious minutes." Fans of the immensely popular book and movie series will recognize their favorite characters among the inventive songs, costumes and props.

The play, appropriate for all ages, was developed as a five-minute street show and premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland in 2006. It opened off-Broadway at New York 's Little Shubert Theatre in 2012 and now tours internationally.

Clarkson and Turner star through June 23, when a new cast will take over.
